An unexpectedly brave attempt to once again rewrite the rules on Pac-Man, resulting in another near-classic arcade experience.

Championship Edition 2 Plus its the same game from 2016, but adding a new 2 player mode. It's an insane arcade that forgets the laws from the original Pac-Man, adding different objetives (like eating moving fruit) and a ton of options. But its core it's so focused on getting hi-scores (and rankings), that the casual player probably won't enjoy it.

Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 remains exhilarating fun, but some of its new additions prove bigger doesn't always equal better.

Pac-Man CE2+ is a frantic experience every good on-the-go gamer should have. But the new 2P mode could and should have been way better.

Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus performs well on Switch, with only a few fits of noticeable slowdown while in handheld mode. The Plus 2P mode is a nice addition, but sadly lacks the content available in the main game. If you're looking for a fun and quick distraction for a few minutes every once in a while, this game may be right up your alley.

Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus takes an already fiendishly addictive arcade game and adds a fantastic multiplayer mode. At $20 it's an impulse buy for any Switch owner.

The new co-op mode is incredibly fun and just proves that two-player Pac-Man should be a mandatory option for all future Pac-Man releases. It is disappointing that the co-op mode is limited to only five levels and an unlockable "Boss Rush" mode.

Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus is the Switch version of a sequel not as good as the original one. Nevertheless, the game is still fun and the new co-op mode is quite enjoyable.
